Happy Dussehra 2021
Dussehra marks the completion of Navratri which is a nine-day-long Hindu festival held in honor of the divine feminine. Dussehra also known as Dasara or Vijayadashami, reminds us that eventually good wins over evil. According to the Hindu mythological epic Ramayan, Rama an avatar of Vishnu triumphed the 10 headed demon king Ravana, who abducted Rama’s wife Sita. Dussehra coincides with the culmination of the nine-day Navratri festival and with the tenth day of the Durga Puja festival. For many, it marks the beginning of preparation for Diwali, which occurs 20 days after Dussehra.
Dussehra is celebrated with great fervor and fanfare. In North India, it incorporates Ram Lila, a gala theatrical enactment of Rama’s life story. Effigies of Ravana—often along with those of Meghnada (Ravana’s son) and Kumbhkarana (Ravana’s brother)—are stuffed with firecrackers and set ablaze at night in open fields.
We wish our community a very Happy Dussehra.
